Quality and success in reproduction medicine are measurable!

Our declared goal is to give every individual couple the best chance possible to fulfill its desire of having a child, while largely avoiding risks and side effects.

In order to meet this high target, we have established a comprehensive quality management system, which we constantily enhance.

Numerous laws and regulations determine the German health care system for the benefit of the patient. This is especially true for reproductive medicine. Important laws and regulations at European, federal and provincial level are:
  • European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR)
  • Embryo Protection Act (ESchG)
  • Transplantation Law (TPG)
  • German Medicines Act (AMG)
  • Fifth Book Social Code (SGB V)
  • National health and safety laws
The compliance of these laws and regulations are impossible without effective quality managment. However, our claim goes far beyond fulfilling only the legally required minimum. We offer you diagnostics and therapy dealing with childlessness at the highest international level. Success in reproductive medicine is measurable! National and international register data, such as the German IVF Register (D.I.R.) serve as a benchmark. The MVZ PAN Institute features in these comparisons regularly among the top group. Important key figures are hereby determined (key performance indicators), such as the pregnancy rate per embryo transfer in IVF or ICSI therapies.
In order to meet the above-mentioned requirements we undergo every year several extensive, voluntary, external inspections related to

structural quality:
e.g.: space recources, physical equipment, staff selection, modernity, constant training of employees, selection of cooperating partners and suppliers, 24h-security, 24h-availability on 365 days a year.

process quality:
e.g.: best possible diagnostics and therapy selection, effectivity of procedures, waiting times, hygiene, emergency management.

result quality:
e.g.: continuous monitoring of success rates itemized by doctors, laboratory staff, used culture media,
incubators and drugs, best possible avoidance of side effects and risks, satisfaction of the patience

quality management system:
e.g.: process of constant improvement in adaptation to changing standards
